The start-up culture is full of people who want to, and try to, but just can’t get their business off the ground. Why is this the case? Much of the reason has to do with the fact that many entrepreneurs don’t know how to take their business from point A to B. Point A is that brilliant idea in the mind of the entrepreneur. B is that subsequent, hoped-for state where the business is secure, established and making money."In between" is tough. In terms of strategies, one of the best ways to build your business is to take that idea in your head to market as soon as possible. Because, delays kill, Speed saves. Here are ten tips on how you can launch your start-up faster.
1. Just start.
2. Sell anything.
3. Ask someone for advice, then ask him/her to do it.
4. Hire remote workers.
5. Hire contract workers.
6. Find a co-founder.
7. Work with someone who pushes you to the extreme.
8. Don't focus on money.
9. Spend time and money on marketing.
10. Talk to your potential customers.
Starting fast doesn’t mean that you should force scaling. Scaling is something that happens carefully, in a measured cadence. Starting fast means that you leverage all possible resources to focus on one thing -- getting started. Getting started is the main thing. Once your business is up and running, anything else is possible. A start-up is a race. The faster you are, the more likely you are to win big.
